It's that time of year again, when writers shutter their blogs, lock their doors, resist Internet distractions and buckle down for National Novel Writing Month - NaNoWriMo.
I've never been much of a NaNo girl, mostly because my schedule makes it pretty impossible to keep up. This year, I did want to try something different though. Something I'm calling NaNoPloMo. Or, National Novel Plotting Month.
See, I'm just wrapping up my current WIP, and I've got ideas for at least two others that I want to tackle next year. I want to spend November nailing all the details and putting the pieces together at least a little more completely, so I can get right down to writing the new stuff in 2013.
Those are my month's goals. What are yours?
November Posting Plan
Also, you'll notice a bit of a change in posting come November. I know a lot of people take a pause from blogging for NaNo, but I also know that not everyone is doing NaNo and those folks will still be cruising the blogosphere.
Here's the plan: A couple times a week, I'll be posting "Inspiration/Resource" posts. They'll be short and hopefully helpful. Each one will highlight:
1) A writing resource I love, and
2) A source of inspiration, like a book quote or song.
That way, even if you're checking in quick from NaNo you might discover a few new tools.
